Farmers Market Vendors

Asked April 24, 2019, 2:11 PM EDT

Hello. I am finding it impossible to secure a produce vendor for the City of Lathrup Village Farmers Market this year. We really only need one vendor since we're such a small community. All the farms I have talked to are already going to one or more markets. Is there any way to get in touch with farms that are actively seeking markets or are just getting established? Our market is Saturdays, 9 am to 12 pm from June 22 through September 7. Thank you, Chris Clough Recreation Coordinator City of Lathrup Village

Dear Chris,

You can share our Find Food and Farms section of the Local Difference website as a resource for finding Oakland/Macomb County farms that may be interested in vending. A few ideas for people to reach out to:
  • Root to Rise Farm....she farms at Tollgate and did the Wyandotte and Ypsi Farmers Markets last year. She has a small CSA and, depending on how much she has expanded this year, may be open to another market.
  • Two Hounds Farm...they're based in Highland and have been vending at the Milford market on Thursday nights. They may be interested in a Saturday market.

Best of Luck!
